Handmade soaps are my absolute love and Instagram has literally converted my love into addiction. Seriously! The video clips of the handmade soaps brings so much satisfaction. And thanks to Vya Naturals team who were sweet enough to send their handmade soaps to test and review them. All they sent was their ROSE BASIL SOAP and the TURMERIC ORANGE AND CINNAMON SOAP. In this post I’ll be talking about these two all natural handmade soaps..but before that let’s get to know about Vya Naturals?

Packaging, the soaps come in their respective color (or most probably ingredient coded I must say) coded paper wrapper in which the soap is actually wrapped with a normal kitchen wrap. The ingredients list along with the other descriptions is given at the back of the soap. The overall packaging is very simple yet very thoughtful.
Talking about the soaps, I totally loved using them. The Turmeric Orange and Cinnamon Soap smells absolutely like a mix of Orange and cinnamon essential oils. The Rose Basil Soap is a white colored soap with dried basil leaves in it and smells mostly like basil with hint of floral oil. As the ingredients tell us, the soap is made from natural oils and powders and contains no harmful chemicals. If you’ve been familiar with different oils and essential oils and also the herbal powders, you’d definitely sense the ingredients as soon as you inhale the fragrance of the soaps. And I love the fact that there’s no glycerin in these soaps. Although there’re a ton of benefits of glycerin , I don’t see myself using it or getting any benefit from i t, so I’d rather skip it. I am glad Vya Naturals did not include glycerin in their soaps. Moreover, the color of the soaps are all natural, derived from the natural ingredients – absolutely no artificial coloring used. Hands down to that!
The soaps lather out easily and cleanses my skin really well. I like the way Coconut oil, Shea butter, Sweet Almond oil and Olive oils nourishes my skin and makes it soft and supple. I have dry skin on my body, so these oils really help with it. Since it has no harsh chemicals and no parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oils, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, artificial scents, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, or petroleum products in them, these soaps are absolutely skin friendly – every skin type person can use it. They can be used for both body and face as well. And in these hot weathers, where I don’t grease myself in moisturizers, these soaps really rescued my skin in keeping it well moisturized without any dryness.
Overall, I totally love these VYA NATURALS ROSE BASIL SOAP and the TURMERIC ORANGE AND CINNAMON SOAP. Don’t ask me my favorite – I just can’t choose one. I like both of them for the ingredients they’ve and the benefits they provide to the skin. I’d definitely recommend these to everyone, and mostly people who’re into handmade and organic soaps. Dry skin girls will love these for the oils which nourish and moisturize the skin. Being very gentle and mild, these soaps are suitable to all skin types.
